Baking, Food, Holidays, These are a few of my favourite things...

Sometimes I dream about these at night. Homemade Peppermint Patties

Like last night for instance. Why does Christmas baking only happen once a year (and not at freakin’ Thanksgiving)? And yes, I could just make them now, but then I’d eat them all and they would lose some of their magic. Holiday treat magic… Anyway, now you can dream about them too. Or make them…so, so good. Here’s the recipe! Good old Eagle Brand. For reasons I can’t explain I can eat these despite my lactose intolerance. Many, many of them. All in one sitting. Peppermint Patties Servings: about 8 dozen Serving Size: Nutrition: See Below Prep Time: 20 Minutes…

Bad lighting, but good, good food. melanie

Baking, Food, Parenting, That's Life

When bad things happen to good cake.

After posting that I wanted to make something the other day, I decided I needed to start small. I love to bake, needed to entertain the boy and had a fancy cake mix I’d bought on sale at Williams Sonoma. Super! We were gonna make cupcakes but couldn’t find the damned liners, so settled on a 2 layer, 8 and 9 inch cake. Like I said, the mix was snazzy, with confetti in the cake. Perfect for the boy.
